A Learning Experience
Since last September, I have been enrolled in adult school. With the school year coming to an end, I can honestly say that I am going to miss it. I was hesitant to go back to school, but felt it was very important. Attending class each day, made me more aware of the obstacles and challenges we (class mates) each face in pursuing our personal goals. By receiving encouragement, I was able to foster self confidence to meet and overcome my personal endeavors. This process taught me more about myself, and allowed me to grow with new aspirations and future dreams. Though it was not an easy process, I am thankful for what I have gained from it. I believe education can be a path way to self-realization.
Before class, I would arrive at least twenty five to thirty minutes early. I liked to find a parking place close to the school so that I wouldn't have to walk far in the dark after class would be let out. I also liked the extra time before hand to unwind and be able to collect myself or go over assignments. I often found myself admiring the beautiful detail of this building and looked forward to being a part of it each week.
Below, you can see where I spent a lot of my time in the past year. I wouldn't have traded it for the world. Not one minute of it!
Laughing out loud ~ I can say that now because it is over, but at the time that it was taking place, I sure did cry over some assignments and sweat through a lot of the tests!
